ECM offers clients Multi Asset Class Credit strategies with the capacity to allocate to opportunities across the entire credit spectrum, from Corporates and Financials, High Yield, Emerging Markets to ABS as well as Senior Secured Loans.
From this initial opportunity set, based on risk and return objectives, some clients may choose to focus solely on investment grade opportunities, whilst others may be willing to capture spread and liquidity premiums by including credit opportunities found in the sub investment grade space.
ECM’s commitment to an unconstrained, benchmark agnostic approach allows our clients to benefit from portfolios that only take intended risks by rotating portfolio exposures to those particular asset classes, sectors, issuers and countries that present the best risk-adjusted return opportunities. Specific credit asset classes may present opportunities at different points in the credit cycle and ECM’s Multi Asset Class Credit strategies aim to capitalise on this.
Our Multi Asset Class Credit strategies generally hedge interest rate risk. Through this hedging, unlike traditional bond allocations, a multi asset class credit mandate is largely insulated from potential future rises in interest rates. Should clients wish to add active interest rate management into the portfolio, ECM has a strong Rates Management team to manage this process.
